    See all ds DNA primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [11B6] to ds DNA
  • Host species
  • Specificity
    In ELISA : This antibody shows 100% reactivity to calf dsDNA and 5% to calf ssDNA. It does not react with RNA.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: ELISAmore details
  • General notes
    This antibody can only be used on highly purified dsDNA that has been stripped of chromatin. Histones can be removed by using an incubation step with proteinase K. We also recommend that you dilute no more than 1:10 - also try a 1:5 dilution.


  • Form

  • Relevance
    dsDNA (double stranded deoxyribonucleic acid) is the genetic material of all cells and many viruses and is a polymer of nucleotides. The monomer consists of phosphorylated 2-deoxyribose N-glycosidically linked to one of four bases, adenine, cytosine, guanine or thymine. These are linked together by 3',5'-phosphodiester bridges. In the Watson-Crick double-helix model, two complementary strands are wound in a right-handed helix and held together by hydrogen bonds between complementary base pairs.

This antibody will work on DNA measurement (by Elisa method).

All the information available for this product is listed on the on-line datasheet (price, datasheet, publication, suitability, cross-reactivity). We will update the on-line datasheet of this product as soon as get more data.

We would recommend trying 1 in 10, 1 in 50 and 1 in 100 in ELISA since every study is different. Please note that the antibody will not react aganst chromatin so make sure that your DNA is protein free.

Because it is tissue culture supernatant the concentration is difficult to determine, but we estimate it is approx. 0.1mg/ml.

This antibody has been used in immunhistochemistry and ELISA applications. We do not have any reports of it being used for purification of double stranded DNA, though it may be suitable for this purpose.
